The NAB AFL Auskick program makes learning to play AFL fun, safe and easy for boys and girls. Through weekly coaching sessions they will learn the skills of the game in an exciting, social and safe environment. The AFL Auskick program has centres that operate all over the country, including Boronia Auskick on Friday nights at Tormore Reserve.
Children will learn the fundamental motor skills vital for future physical activity and sport participation as well as learning how to interact with other children as part of a team in small group activities.
The program also provides a great opportunity for parents to interact with their kids through the activities, have the opportunity to make new friends, learn about the game and spend quality time with their children.
Boronia Auskick is managed by Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club so it provides a perfect pathway for boys and girls who want to go on to play junior football and eventually senior football. Our Auskick Co-ordinator is Samantha Dunkinson, our Junior Vice President, who can be reached on 0419 502 633.

How can I be involved?
Boronia Auskick is run by a commitee of volunteer parents. Whilst we have the backing and support of the AFL & Eastern Football League, and our sponsors, the clinics you attend are managed by our junior committee.
Our coaches also require assistance every week to ensure the smooth running of the clinic. We encourage parent involvement during the clinics and it’s also a great time to have some fun with your child. Speak to your coach for further information.
What does my child need to bring?
- There is no set uniform for Auskick sessions, just general sports clothing will be fine. Many kids also like to wear their favourite team’s colours and jumpers.
Drink bottle (water is available from the canteen)
Appropriate foot wear. Whilst it is not absolutely necessary to have football boots it will be easier for running when the ground is wet.
